Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition Makes Me So Glad I Waited to Buy it

on November 3, 2011 9:30 PM

2008’s Fallout 3 was pretty much the biggest RPG of that year and the Game of the Year Edition released the following year cemented that by packing in all of the numerous expansion packs for the title. This made the GOTY version an infinitely better value than buying the game and all the DLC separately, and it stepped on the toes of the gamers who had. That’s why I decided to wait patiently for a similar release of Fallout: New Vegas, which dropped late last year.

My hunch was spot on and today Bethesda has revealed  Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition. This edition includes the game itself and all four expansion packs released for the game so far: Dead Money, Honest Hearts, Old World Blues, and Lonesome Road, as well as the Courier’s Stash and Gun Runners’ Arsenal item packs. All this for the fair price of $50 ($40 for the PC version).

The expansion packs alone would run you forty bucks, so this bundle essentially packs in over $100 worth of content for half of that. Let cheap gamers near and far rejoice in unison. Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition will be available in North America on February 7th, 2011 for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
